iman-shumpert-shooting-knicks

We started the season under the guise that perhaps Iman Shumpert could get traded at some point.  Fans pointed towards his defense and those few foreshadowing sparks of offense he has had over his career as signs that there was potential that we could not overlook.

Then came the Kenneth Faried rumors and we saw that the league does not quite value Shump like we do, as Denver laughed off that trade possibility.  Still, trade rumors loomed. Continue reading

1 Negative STAT: The Unfair Stigma of Amare Stoudemire’s Return

NBA: JAN 09 Knicks at Lakers
